Some annecdotal information: I stopped Jami a few days ago and the networking 
service in my computer stopped giving me trouble. I thought that was odd, so I 
started using Jami again to check. I had some new messages from contacts, 
answered to them, and then started to have the same problems indicated below:

Actually, after the networking service appears to goes down, all the following 
commands hang:

sudo herd status
sudo herd stop networking
sudo herd start networking
sudo herd restart networking
sudo reboot
sudo halt
sudo shepherd --help

Pressing =Ctrl+C= has no other effect but to print ^C. It's as if the shepherd 
itself were down.

So I guess that's why I can't restart or turn the machine off from GNOME Shell 
either, because GNOME's buttons call "halt" and "reboot" (?).

Is it really possible for an application like Jami to cause this problem or am 
I just going loco? (Jami was upgraded with my profile at the same time I 
upgraded my system)
